Our Story …

My name is John Madden aka Gramps an octogenarian, who has with his daughter Katrina OReilly undertaken a number of rallies. This time I am teaming up with Thomas (Tom) McGrath from Boorowa, our sons Best Mate and great family friend to under-take the up coming Shitbox Rally in October 2019 from Melboune to Townsville via Birdsville. This will be my 3rd Rally we have participated the other two being The Mystery Box in Adelaide 2016 and the New Zealand South Island Rally in 2018. Our reasons for taking on this task again is that we regard the need to determine the cause of the different types of cancer and a possible subsequent cure is very important to us both as I myself have lost family members due to this malignant disease. The first was in 1976 when my 3 year old son Andrew succumbed due to a Cerebral Tumour. Fast forward to 1996 when my sister Noreen died of Pancreas Cancer, another Joan, followed suite in 2016 of throat Cancer and in 2016 I lost my brother Pat to Emphysema due to asbestosis, and currently my other brother Terence is being treated for Prostrate. Tom is doing the rally for the many close friends and family who have battled this disease, his own Dad John, sister Leanne and brother in law Rick are all survivors to which the family are so grateful. Coming from the small town of Boorowa way to many friends have battled with cancer, which is felt extremely hard by the whole community.

Therefore the research undertaken by the dedicated team of the medical fraternity and scientists alike to find a cure for any one of the above cannot be achieved unless the support of the community is forth coming and this is clearly evident by the time and effort of the organisers of this Shitbox Rally to raise the much needed funds to allow this most important work to continue. Therefore it would be appreciated if you could support us to achieve this end by sponsoring the Jelly Belly and Muffin Top Team Thank you

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, this year for the 10th year anniversary rally, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour to raise money for cancer research.

The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.

Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.

Cancer Council is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. We conduct and fund research studies across all cancers and all stages of the cancer journey.

Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

Almost $20 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
